Sweeter The Meat E.P.

     
         
         
         
             
             
Desolation Angels are a heavy metal band from the UK formed in 1981 releasing two albums before splitting in 1994. Reforming in 2012, the band released a new E.P. in 2014 and are set to tour the UK and Europe during 2015.    
             
The new E.P. opens with the title song 'Sweeter The Meat' which is bombastic in its delivery and is a classic NWOBHM rollicking rock song. The twin guitar attack, powerful vocals and a pounding rhythm define this song. Close your eyes and you can almost smell the early eighties.    
             
Is this E.P. a nostalgic trip back to the eighties you may ask! Not a chance, especially when 'Metal Man' kicks in. Full of thunderous, foot stomping rhythms, this is an anthemic modern sounding song that will become a classic among die hard metal fans the world over. 'Medusa' is a slower, pounding, foot tapping song displaying mood and atmosphere showcasing the experience and talent this band have. A top notch romp.    
             
Pace returns in overdrive with the power metal tinged 'Archangel' as it races and rattles to a conclusion through screaming guitars and a very catchy chorus. Surely a live favourite? Closing the E.P. is the mid tempo, foot tapping 'Set Your Spirit Free', with its huge chunky riffs and memorable hooks. Classic NWOBHM!    
             
Overall, bombastic, barnstorming NWOBHM proving that British heavy metal is alive. Sit up, stand up and take note.
